Fair enough, guess it should be ok like this until it's needed
elsewhere, to avoid having to potentially live with useless symbols
until a major bump if they ultimately need to be changed. Although i
have to say it's kinda weird having a source file in the libavutil
folder that's not compiled into said library.

Wait to see if someone else comments.
